Description: The Stoopy Storky is one of the 16 very first toys that were made by Fisher-Price in their beginnings in 1931. Stoopy Storky is one of the Fisher-Price patented Pop-Up Kritters (Patented October 5, 1926-No. 1,601,983) that are made of bead and string construction allowing the Kritter to spring to life when the strings are pulled tightly, squirm and sway around as the strings are loosened, and laying flat when the strings are loosened all the way. Pop-Up Kritters are mounted on a paddle and the control strings have metal loops on the end to allow easy maneuvering.

    I twist and turn
    From stem to stern,
    The newest you you've ever seen or heard.
